Update 2018-02-16

Hi again! Another update tonight as I continue the great winter clean-out. There's lots of unusual and useful stuff here. I hope to have some more coming up tomorrow as well. Thanks for reading! --Josh

A quick note- It's getting towards the end of winter and I need to make room for spring tool season. I've got many hundreds of tools to find new homes for. There's nothing exceptional or exciting about this stuff, it's just decent, usable tools. I often hear from new woodworkers who need usable tools on a tight budget. I think many of these items will suit. I do realize that it's not practical to spend $4 to ship a $5 item so I want to remind everyone that I'm happy to hold items for up to a month in hopes that you'll find more items to add to a box and save on shipping. Also keep an eye on my Parts and Projects page for some tools that need a little more TLC than normal, but are worth the effort


Tools are organized into the following categories:

Huge Stanley no. 132 Jointer Plane.
This is the largest, and least common, of Stanley's Liberty Bell line of hand planes. It's 26in long with a 2 5/8in wide iron. The Liberty Bell planes were a compromise in price between the inexpensive all-wood planes of the time, and the more expensive Stanley planes with the more expensive Bailey pattern adjusters. This plane has a very clean body, perfect knob and tote, and the original 2 5/8in wide blade. The blades and chipbreakers on these planes are not interchangeable with regular Bailey planes which makes them very hard to find. The blade on this one is pitted, as you can see in the photos, but salvageable. Put a back bevel on it and it'll be ready in no time. It's not a top-end plane, but an affordable, usable big jointer

24in Jointer Plane.
This plane is 24in long with a 2 3/8in wide double iron. This is a Stanley no. 31 but not branded. It has an identical casting, frog, knob, and tote as a 31. The only exceptions are the iron which is a beautiful tapered, unmarked blade, and the lateral adjuster which is twisted, not the patented Stanley adjuster. It's a high quality plane in very good condition. It has minimal wear, even on the sole. the blade is very clean and free of pitting, but it has a chip on one corner that will require a quick grind to correct. A fine user jointer plane.

Scarce North Brothers 20-3 Spiral Screwdriver.
This screwdriver was made for manufacturing where there was only a need to drive screws. The spiral shaft only works one way. Just in case, there is a provision to remove screws using the ratchet mechanism if the slider is moved to the left, but it's not something the tool excels at. This is the largest of the three sizes North Brother offered. It's in excellent working order and comes with three bits..

Unusual and Early High-Pitch Cove and Ovolo Molding Plane by HAYES, Liverpool.
This plane was made by William Hayes in Liverpool between 1790-1805. It has all the distinct hallmarks of a plane from this era including the wide, flat chamfers along the hand hold, the deep cove at the step, and pronounced gouge cuts at the transition points. The plane cuts a sweet little 1/2in wide, 1/2in deep cove and ovolo profile. It's very unusual in that the blade is bedded at 65 degrees, higher even than middle pitch, which is almost unheard of in my experience. It must have been intended for the most difficult exotic cabinet woods. The plane has some light wear including a small bruise in the heel at the depth stop. There is also a hang hole at the toe. Otherwise it's in excellent condition and certainly a usable plane. The iron is long and clean, free of pitting. It could certainly be restored to working condition without too much hassle and would be a very interesting plane to use

I'll make a great worker and a useful addition to your kit of molding planes.

Unusual, Early 3/8in Ovolo Molding Plane by THOS.THOMAS.
This plane is marked "Thos.Thomas" at the toe. It's clearly early with broad, flat chamfers. a pronounced cove along the step, and a rounded wedge finial. AWP-IV has a Thomas Thomas working in Baltimore ca. 1842 but I feel this plane might be earlier. It's modified with additions to both the fence and depth stop that could be removed if you want to restore it to its original appearance. It's an early plane and a bit of a mystery
